Lyrics of Earth

by Archibald Lampman


 

 

WITH THE NIGHT


 

O doubts, dull passions, and base fears,
    That harassed and oppressed the day,
Ye poor remorses and vain tears,
    That shook this house of clay:

All heaven to the western bars                                                    5
    Is glittering with the darker dawn;
Here with the earth, the night, the stars,
    Ye have no place: begone!
